2017 Lilac Festivals

Lilac festivals are among the first outdoor festivals of the year. They herald the beginning of the spring, and a new outdoor gardening season. The timing of the festivals can be somewhat problematic. Cooler springs delay the flowering, while hotter than normal weather, can bring the blossoms out earlier than anticipated. If you travel to a festival, find out when it is being held, and go during the middle of the event. Try to find out how the lilacs are doing- is an early, on-time or late bloom expected?

The Rochester, N.Y. lilac festival is the biggest and best of them all. It has one of the the largest displays of lilacs, boasting 500 varieties over 22 acres in Highland Park. The annual Lilac Festival lasts for two weeks, and includes a wide range of events, exhibits, Lilac10K races, craft displays, bands and concerts, and much more.The American Bus Association lists it among it's "Top 100 Events", as bus tours from all over the U.S. and Canada bring tourists there.
